Siren

The blessing disguised as a girl
Unfurled her hair to the wind
Closed her eyes and lifted her nose
Inhaling insight in draughts

Liquid steady on the waves
She opened eyes tinged with stars
Set her course in the line of her jaw
And left you in her wake

Owl dreams

I wish I dreamed of owls more often
They speak in round tones and tell me to let go
That’s the only way to fly they say
You can’t hold on and soar

Dream owls know my fears at night
They know I cower from certain views
They are patient with me though
Knowing magic can’t be rushed

I wish I had my own owl eyes
Open wide to possibility even in the dark
It’s said they see the future
But they only tell in dreams
